The new vehicle BRUTUS introduced in Season 10 of Fortnite has received some criticism from players because of its excessive power. Epic Games has stated that it has entered this new vehicle to help less experienced players gain and accumulate elimination.
With a post on his official blog, Epic Games has explained the reasons that led him to BRUTUS in Season 10 of Fortnite. As the developer reiterates, Fortnite’s mission is to “bring together players of all abilities to keep them together and give everyone the chance to win”. At the same time, another goal is to “show and entertain as well as offer new ways to play.”
In the words of Epic Games, BRUTO has been added for these very reasons: to help less experienced players gain and accumulate kills, offer new ways of playing, and provide even more battlefield entertainment.
As you can see at the bottom of this page, Epic Games has also released two graphics highlighting the number and percentage of kills with BRUTO in Fortnite games. Judging from these data, the BRUTO would not significantly affect the performance of the games. It just offers new game options and a tool that makes it easier for beginners to get rid of them. What do you think?
In the meantime, let’s remember that the Fortnite 10.10 Update has made some changes to BRUTO, which partially limit its performance.
